Our History

Established in 1984, and have a long history of placing qualified candidates with many corporations. We have the ability to support businesses in Canada, the USA and overseas.

Since 1984 we have successfully matched thousands of candidates with large and small corporations. Throughout the economic cycles during the last twenty five (25) years we weathered the downturns to seek out opportunities, industries and capitalized on the upturns to sustain our longetivity and develop our services.

Our Process

Partnering with our corporate clients, we develop an employee profile to fill their personnel requirements. If advertising is mutually decided, our team creates the design and media strategy to achieve the highest exposure and response success for your advertising investment.

With or without advertising, our team supports the process with a diligent database search, networking or retained headhunting if requested into the appropriate industry. We receive all applications, screen and pre-qualify candidates, provide short-listed résumés, and manage the interview process.

Managing the interview campaigns locally and internationally requires fine tuned logistics which we have developed and continue to adjust within a constantly changing world of politics. We debrief the applicants about the company, the corporate and cultural climate, and all specifics to the requirements.

Successful candidates receive special care from Petro-Staff International as well. We receive and present the employment offers and at times, negotiate specific items. We assist new employees in visa and immigration processing and mobilization incoming to Canada or expatriating.

Our Commitment

Petro Staff International is committed to upholding standards of excellence by consistently maintaining honesty, integrity and diligence while achieving advantageous results for both our professional and corporate clients.

Your experience with us, either as a corporate client or as a professional, is characterized by care, honesty and diligence in coordinating interviews and guidance throughout the selection process. We have been successful at what we do and proud of the results we deliver.
